Henrik's all jacked up. So too will be the crowd at the Garage tonight.
With the series tied at 2 wins each, the Vancouver Canucks and the Los Angeles Kings now play a best of 3. The series shifts from California to BC, as the Canucks return home to host the Kings tonight at GM Place.

Definitely the look of a typical Kings "hockey fan"
At the end of Shakespeare's Richard the III, the main character, during a battle set on horseback, is left left screaming "A horse!, a horse!, my kingdom for a horse!" It's just meant to show that for all his vaunted power, he eventually gets done in by something so mundane, so pedestrian, so seemingly unimportant as having his stupid horse die on him.

This has been the best first round of NHL playoffs that I can remember. We’ve already seen one upset, Flyers (although I said I should pick them, but stupidly didn’t), the Bruins are one win away from another one, while the Predators, Avalanche, Senators and Coyotes aren’t going away quietly. And the most physical and entertaining series has been the Canucks/Kings, and I fully expect them to go seven games.

The first week of the playoffs has been awesome. Every series has been entertaining, fast-paced and as usual upsets are looming. One of the biggest battles is off the ice rather than on it.

Last night I felt a little like Christopher Nolan in the film Memento. I felt I was afflicted with a kind of short-term amnesia, unable to store new memories, and so to put everything together, to make sense of it all.
So strange was it, that not even in retrospect, with the benefit of hindsight, can any kind of coherent narrative be ascribed to this game.
